Chameleon-like plasma application potential
Cold atmospheric plasma is adaptable – also for your particular area of application
Researchers can use cold plasma as a catalyst for chemical reactions. It can also be used as a “controlled” heat value that can be applied on and off within milliseconds. Plasmawise main focus of utilizing cold plasma applications are in the fields of Medicine, Energy, Environmental Control, 3D Printing, Industrial Processes, and other applications such as Agriculture.
Cold plasma is characterized by:
- Effectiveness against bacteria, spores, fungi, viruses and biofilms – e.g. 6 log reduction of bacteria within 30 sec.
- Effective reduction of odours by splitting up covalent compounds – e.g. elimination of odours in air streams or textiles (process of “Electron Impact Dissociation”).
- Applicability to a wide variety of materials with variable geometry – e.g. thermolabile surfaces, textiles, plastics or metal.
- Treatment of patients or living tissues and cells – as demonstrated in the extensive clinical studies performed.
Plasma has many applications in the field of Energy. It could be applied in the process such as hydrocarbon fuel reforming, gasification, municipal waste, dissociation of hydrogen sulfide, and syngas. Significant application in the environmental control area include sterilization of air, water, and surfaces; reformation of gas (reduce emission). Doctors and researchers make considerable progress in the medicine field while applying plasma technology. Plasma can treat cancer, heal wounds, coagulate blood, and repair and regenerate micro and nano scale tissue. In agriculture, plasma applications include weather control, plasma acid, and nitrogen infused water.
The following are the main fields and industries in which non-thermal plasma applications can provide the most benefit:
- FOOD SAFETY
- ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL
- 3D PRINTING
